For 30 years we have worked to improve the lives of young children and their families experiencing homelessness in Massachusetts. We support homeless families exclusively by providing high-quality early education, opportunities for play, and comprehensive family support services. Nobody knows early childhood homelessness - both the challenges and solutions- better than us.

As such, Horizons receives inquiries each year from local and national media outlets seeking information about our practices, outcomes, stories and more. Below is a listing of our newsclips and recent press releases.
